    I am very proud to announce that my new book, The Handmade Silver Gelatin Emulsion Print, Creating Your Own Liquid Emulsions for Black & White Paper, published by Focal Press, will be released in November. The book is part of a marvelous series of books (more to come in the series) edited by Christina Z. Anderson. Kudos to Chris and Focal for recognizing that the physical, non-digital print is an increasingly important facet of fine art photography.

    Many thanks to the wonderful print makers who contributed to the book!

    That's great to hear, Jason. I think there is potential market for handmade paper (If you're open to expansion! I'm a "recovering" over-extended workaholic, so I'd never push anyone into the 24/7 zone :smile: ).

    I could not think of any better way to say congrats than to pre-order the book, so I did. I am not planning on giving silver gelatin paper making a try yet, but I am l looking forward to getting a practical understanding of the types of processes and the possibilities. POP sound intriguing for some reason...perhaps handling some of Linda Conner's prints last year impressed me.

    I am satisfied with my pt/pd DOP right now. I expose and develop my film so that I do not use any contrast agents, so occasionally I have some negatives that have too much contrast for DOP pt/pd. They would appreciate what Ziatype process could do for them...but I print those negatives in carbon.

    Congratulations on the book. It's people like you, Jason (Nodda), and others who allow me to ignore the naysayers saying film photography is dead or dying. It will continue to be viable to those who are motivated.

    It’s definitely something I’ve thought about, but this would need to be my day job first. :smile:

    Congratulations! I'm truly honoured to be included as a contributor. Thanks for your many years of advocacy for home made silver gelatin emulsions both here and on The Light Farm.
